Lasagna. Delicious, but could be more... dessert-y. Case in point: lasagna cupcakes from HeirloomLA—who’ve cooked up some exclusive flavors that we’ll FedEx to you by the dozen. Plus, Fracture is printing your photographic masterworks on glass for a fraction of the price. Even the one with the bearskin rug.
Things to do for March 17, 2011
Boozy Irish Shakes, English Brunches and French Blondes
The weekend is wailing on the bagpipes.
St. Pat’s Shakes at DMK
To celebrate this most Irish of holidays, we recommend... a burger. Well, as long as it’s accompanied by a minty shake made with artisanal ice cream then topped with Lucky Charms cereal. And, okay, go ahead—throw in a shot of whiskey. (In the shake, not the burger.)
Killian Gui at Chicago Fashion Incubator
Just as you’re about to freshen up your spring wardrobe comes word that Chicago’s best homegrown designers have a shop to call their own. This five-week-only pop-up shop will feature Killian Gui’s line of handsome, office-ready dress shirts. Worry about pants later.
She’s French. She’s blonde. And she’s all yours for the weekend. This Catherine Deneuve film festival is a cinematic journey through the icon’s best work, including The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Belle de Jour, and 8 Women—in case you get greedy for more French blondes.
Beers for Japan
You’re not one to do nothing during a crisis, but sometimes drinking a beer can help. So look for the Red Cross symbol next to one of the 32 beer taps here—a portion of the sales goes to the charity. It feels good to give.
Blokes & Birds & Brunch
Weekend brunches can be a mad swirl of duck confit hash, shrimp and grits, and BLTs gilded with the random duck egg. And if they’re not, let’s do something about it: for instance, sampling the new brunch at Blokes & Birds... unless you’re expecting your own duck egg shipment.
